i'm heading down a lonely highway

i'm runnin' down a one way street

all i wanna know

are you going my way?

is there some place quiet where we can meet?

and friends they come and friends they go

but you were always by my side and where it all ends

i don't know

don't cry no more, just hold on tight

there was a time when i was desperate

living in a town without a name

and when things got so dark and desolate

you taught me how to hide my shame

and kings and queens and millionaires

may never know what i've known

and thank the stars i'm the lucky one

thanx for the lesson that i've been shown

i feel rich, i feel power and security

and when i'm weak, you are strong

once in a lifetime, twice in eternity

and guess what?

nothing else matters anyways
